"Orchid" is a stunning wedding dress by Kimmera Madison of Tres Beau from her exclusive wedding salon. Any dress from her store is a treasure but the wedding gowns are a specialty and must for every brides consideration.
"Orchid" is aptly named. A series of flowers spill down the side of the headpiece and gown, tucked in amongst the toile and matching the beautiful scalloped edged, emboidered appliqued lace. The effect of the soft blush against the traditional white creates a glow that only enhances the beauty of the lucky bride.
The dress itself is bodiced with gathered cups, mimicking scallop shells . Kimmera then drapes the lace across the dress in such a way as to capitalize on the contrast and punctuate the lines of the dress. Off the shoulder, puff sleeves catch at the elbow and are nearly met with long white gloves. The trumpet skirt flows into a gorgeous fish tail train that is finished with the lace.
Several lovely touches, such as the lace appliques on the bare back and shoulders above the sleeve, are simply exquisite. A single decadent blush bow seems to pin the train to the dress and provides a grogeous back that would thrill any bride. Not one detail or angle of this dress has been ignored.
Orchid retails for $2500L.
